Lonnie Tatum

Business Development, Fire Chief, Ret.

Chief Tatum has more than 40 years of experience in the fire service and more licenses and certifications than there is space to list on the Internet. The folks at KAS came to know Chief Tatum during the design of the Highland Village Central Fire Station, where he was serving as Fire Chief.   We enjoyed working with him so much that when he retired from the Fire Department in 2012, we asked him to come on board and introduce us to other Chiefs, because Lonnie knows everyone! Going with him to a fire service convention is like going with a celebrity. With his sense of humor, and his view from “outside” the architecture industry, he has breathed new life into the KAS marketing department and our business development efforts. He is one of the most honest and funniest people you’ll ever meet. We couldn’t completely steal him away to Denton though, as he and his wife Sandra are residents of Highland Village where they spend as much time as possible with their children and grandchildren, again, too numerous to list.
